Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Side suit in a Grand Slam
Very tempting to cross to dummy with a third trump (not with a heart) and float J, planning to double finesse if covered. While this in theory is a bit inferior to banging down AK, east might not cover from Qxx fearing we have AKTxxx (or even ATxxxx).
YBTD after slow double
Result stands. The criterion is "demonstrably suggested", not "speculatively suggested".
Viking Club 1M-1NT question
I have lots of experience with this against any level of opposition. I would say having to pass is a minus, but not a big minus and not something to worry too much about. Missing 4 of that major is very rare. Much worse is being left in 1M with ...
How much credence?
Not K. Club to T and run diamonds. Then we don't have to guess.
Do bridge paradoxes exist?
It should be possible to constructs layouts at for example BAM, where contract A on average is better than contract B, B is better than C, and C is better than A. Suppose there are always 12 tricks in and NT. If are 3-2, 7 makes, and ...
ATB
South should not have passed 3NT. He has a big band in context for clubs, and north might have had a more club oriented hand than his actual holding, where slam is only marginally good.
Dirty Talk
I think an adjusted score is in order. The problem for EW is that they would very likely have gone down anyway. To make it, declarer needs to guess clubs without testing diamonds. More inspired things have happened before, though. 25% 980, 75% -50, for both sides seems about fair ...
Ruling question regarding an unalerted jump cuebid
David, your position in this subthread may lead to your unfairly favouring those players, who are good at lawyering their own case, often by ridicously overstating how many decisions they would obviously have got right if just blablabla ... I don't agree with that. A player who choose to be ...
Yet another what does this 2NT mean
Craig, if we assume that we can't have a power 3N our way, after they open and respond, strong opponents will rob us. It could be 25 hcp, or less if there is a suit to run. Jeff's Axx, KJxx, Kxx, AJx is too weak to bid 2N ...
Ruling question regarding an unalerted jump cuebid
I think the answer depends on the alert rules, and I don't know ACBL alert rules well enough. Under international rules, where 4 "splinter" and 4 "void" are equally alertable, I would not adjust if N chose not to ask but instead took a guess as to ...
